The charm of downtown St. John’s is supposed to be protected by heritage standards. But with three highrise buildings currently being built dt and three more approved and to start within the next year, downtown ain’t gonna be what it used to be.
I’m all about development, but do it right; up by the airport, out on Torbay road, not in the congested downtown.
Always wanted to try and get a nice picture of my accordion. I don’t play it much any more, but I go through phases where I want to do nothing but sit down, and learn a new song. I got my accordion back in high school. My grandfather was a major influence in that decision because I love hearing him play. Maybe someday I will be as good as him, but I highly doubt it.
So I learned two things tonight: I really do enjoy night time photography, and I really need to learn how to do it better. Last night’s picture was too dark, so I fixed it today. Dan took a picture similar to this for our first blog, and I knew I wanted to try and re-create it for this week. I shot a different angle, and tried to soften the colours, but increase the light. I am happy with the results. I look forward to warmer nights and more opportunities for night photos.
Sorry for such a similar shot as Matt’s, that’s bound to happen when you’re shooting in the exact same place. I had a pretty cool photo of the moon’s reflection in the water, but it was too out of focus.
The theme this week is long exposure, and we’re defining that as longer than three seconds; this was 26 seconds.
Long exposure week! Photo style specific week meaning anything is game, as long as the exposure is greater than 3 seconds. We decided to trek out to Cape Spear tonight, but the fog monster had rolled in. So we made our way to the wharf in Petty Harbour and tried our hands at photography. I am happy with this result.
There was a low-lying fog coming over the hills all day but the sun kept it away. A few fingers of fog made it in through the narrows and over the harbour a couple of times. I went up to the golf course and took this pano around 5.
This town is jonesin’ for summer and a bit of warm weather, it’s due any day now, haha.
